Benedikt Partenheimer – Turnaround

“Turnaround shows a series of portraits which involves people of different generations who belong to a wide range of cultural context. Contrary to the conventional portrait the person is photographed from behind. Thus the beholder follows the line of sight of the artist “looking into the world” with the portrayed person. The series deals with contemporary perception and expectation within a new context of portraiture and therefore establishes a different position for interpretation and imagination. The series examines external appearance and inner experience – the ambivalence of space.”
